Lake Joe WishList

District A4 Lion Clubs:  I have been asked by Lion Chris MacPherson to forward this email regarding a 'wish list' for Lake Joe.  This is a camp supported by the Lions Clubs in MDA.  From their web site:

Lake Joseph CentreCNIB's Lake Joseph Centre (commonly known as "Lake Joe") is a fully accessible lakefront facility located in the Muskoka region, providing a unique blend of recreation and vision rehabilitation in a safe, inclusive environment. Two hours north of Toronto, Lake Joe stretches over 12.5 acres of waterfront property on the northwest corner of beautiful Lake Joseph. There, a wide range of programs are available to people of all ages who are living with sight loss.

To change what it is to be blind today, join the Lake Joe Vision Team to sponsor a camper and ensure more people have an opportunity to experience the magic of Lake Joe.

I am PDG Lion Bill MacKenzie and I am the MDA Sight Chair.  I would like to ask you to please review the Wish List and distribute to all the  Lions Clubs of your District.  There are many articles that are needed to keep the camp running and clubs can see for themselves some of the articles they can purchase or donate to.  MDA has always supported this great camp and I am sure the clubs in your District would like to keep doing so.  I would also like for you as sight chair to follow up with the clubs of any questions or concerns they may have and send me a brief report about 2 weeks before the Council meetings so I can give my report to Council.  Thank you for taking on this worthwhile position and I look forward to be able to work with all of you.

Quilt Centennial Project

Lions of District A4, please see the message below from Lion Colleen and if you have not yet sent in your cheque, please send as soon as possible so they can make progress on this project.  If your club has opted out there is still time to “opt in” for a very modest fee and participate in a district wide project.  Details are below.
Lion Joyce, District A4 Cabinet Secretary

A special thanks to the majority of lions clubs in District A-4 that accepted the invitation to participate in the Centennial Quilt Project. This endeavour will take about 200 hours of work and hopefully will be ready for the display at the Convention. I would appreciate that the clubs involved would send in their cheques of $20.00 so that we can purchase the necessary quilting materials.

Please make out the cheques to the LOST VILLAGES LIONS CLUB.

Lions - Ride For Dad Partnership

Lions Club Presidents and Secretaries,

I am very pleased to be sending you this notification, and very excited!

Lions - Ride For Dad Partnership Letter
Lions - Ride For Dad - Complete Proposal

As it says in the attached letter recently I presented a proposal at the Multiple District ‘A’ Council meeting that was endorsed unanimously to support the partnership between the Ride For Dad and the Lions Multiple District ‘A’ clubs.  I then attended the District A4 meeting to talk about the proposal as well.  That group unanimously passed a motion to take part. 

The next step is yours to finish.

The Ride For Dad fiscal year runs from July 31st, 2016 to August 1st, 2017.  We have already included the Lions logo on all Ontario & Quebec posters and pledge forms we are preparing as a ‘Supported by’ logo.  Should this go well we will likely move the logo up to a ‘Title Sponsor’ position.

For this reason, we have asked that your contributions be sent to me on or before December 31st

Let’s work together for an important cause of Prostate Cancer Research & Awareness and work toward increasing your membership, event participation and more!

Remember we are only asking for a contribution equivalent to $5 per member and we will be providing various ways to promote membership in Lions to a whole new group of people.

Thank you.

Colleen Campbell
Manager National Office Ride For Dad (RFD) / Prostate Cancer Fight Foundation (PCFF)
Office: (613) 623-0733
Cell: (613) 371-3575

Make a donation and help fight prostate cancer!

Quilt project proposal - Ingleside Long Sault Lost Villages Lions

Dear Lions Clubs of District A-4,

As you are well aware, Lions International is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2017. Lions clubs are being challenged to come up with a Centennial Project.

I would like to propose preparing a Centennial QUILT with all clubs in District A-4 being represented. I will undertake this project and would like to have each club represented on the quilt.

Each individual club would have their own square ( 5 or 6 inches) embroidered with their club name. The cost to each club to help defray expenses would be $20.00.

This notice is being sent out to all clubs to determine the projects feasibility. If only a small number of clubs respond, the project will be dropped since it does not represent the District A-4.

1. Gloucester Emergency Food Cupboard
